July is Parks and Recreation Month in Lakewood. Parks and Recreation programs provide safe and structured activities for youth; they provide lifelines for older adults and provide outlets for physical activity, artistic expression, educational interests and social pursuits for people of all ages! Parks, greenways and open spaces provide a welcome respite from our fast paced, high-tech lifestyles. Well maintained parks provide safe areas to play and make Lakewood a desirable place to live, work and visit. People from all walks of life are welcome in our parks. The Lakewood City Council proclaimed July, 2010 as Parks and Recreation Month in the City of Lakewood and encouraged citizens to participate in Parks and Recreational activities throughout our community. Get out and enjoy a Lakewood Park today!
